Increased Safety Protocol

In light of the recent school tragedies, we are working to improve the safety and security of North Pointe. You will notice the following changes to the front office procedures:

  • Every person who enters the front office will be spoken to on the intercom system before entering.
  • All parents or visitors who want to enter the building must sign in with our Lobby Guard system after speaking with front office staff.
  • Parents will not be allowed to visit classrooms without speaking with myself or Mr. Cobbs first.
  • Every parent who needs to pick up a student must present identification.

We are working with the district office and the Sheriff's Office to identify other measures we can take to improve the safety of our students. On Monday, Feb. 19th our staff went through Active Assailant Training with members of the Sheriff's department.

If you have questions or concerns, please let us know.
